The mission of Kentucky Christian University is to educate students for Christian leadership and service in the Church and in professions throughout the world.Kentucky Christian University was established in Grayson, Kentucky, on December 1, 1919, as "Christian Normal Institute." The co-founders were J. W. Lusby, an outstanding educator, Church leader, teacher, and journalist of eastern Kentucky; and J. O. Snodgrass, a minister of the Gospel from Iowa. Associated with them was R. B. Neal, an evangelist of eastern Kentucky. In her earlier days, Christian Normal Institute included both high school and junior college programs, as well as emphasizing the preparation of public school teachers, as indicated in the word "Normal." This area of education was phased out during the early 1920's, at which time the education of young people for Christian ministries became the central purpose. The name was changed to "Kentucky Christian College" in 1944.
